Farah Jabeen and M. Anis-ul-Haque from Quaid-i-Azam University and Muhammed Naveed Riaz from University of Sargodha composed a research study on the effect of different parenting styles on children’s behavior and self control. They conducted two questionnaires and gave them to students ages twelve to fifteen in a group study at a school after making them aware of the research project. The questionnaires asked questions about the students’ home life, and the type of parenting they received. The three types of parenting considered in this study were authoritative, which was equally high “warmth and responsiveness”, authoritarian, which was low warmth and high responsiveness, and permissive, which was high warmth and low responsiveness. The study indicated that authoritative parenting styles, both maternal and paternal, resulted in high control of emotions, goal setting, and capability to learn. It also indicated that maternal and paternal permissive parenting styles resulted in low control of emotions, bossy, immature, and impulsive behavior, and overall lower capability of learning. Authoritarian parenting styles were found insignificant.
